This came missing many of the parts. We reported it and the manufacturer (through Greenhouse Megastore) sent them a piece at a time. It's January 16 and we still don't have all the parts. In addition, the top panels, which did have all the parts, slid down or blew off every time there was wind. We purchased a greenhouse of @ the same size from Canada at the same time. What a difference.
This is a very POOR quality structure, flimsy and the customer service is BAD!
6 people 7 hours and still not done. 5 people finished the next day. The instructions are terrible! The snap together part was great. 8x16 additions instructions non existent. We secured railroad ties to the ground and secured it to them. All level and squared up. Doors still need tweaking. We will see!
We were surprised at the lack of instructions; there were only pictures to guide assembly. Definitely a two-person job. The quality of the panels is disappointing; they are very thin and not likely to withstand our Wyoming winds and/or winters. For the price, we were expecting something with a bit more quality. We will see!
I would hate to see the normal greenhouse that isn't just snap together. With three people it took 8 hours to assemble. However, as a whole a good product.
I had no problem putting the greenhouse together - all the parts were there, and the instructions were clear enough for me. HOWEVER, the single layer of plastic is almost no insulation - all it will do is keep wind and rain off of your plants. If you want insulation, go for one of the greenhouses with double or triple wall polycarbonate walls.
This greenhouse is the perfect size for us. It arrived within a week and it took my wife and me about 7 hours on Saturday and an additional 4 hours on Sunday to get it set up. Instructions were fairly easy to follow but there were a few little things we had to improvise with to get it up. Product is sturdy once it's completely put together. I just wish it had openings at each end for better cross ventilation.
I am 73 and my husband is 84 and the two of us were able to assemble the greenhouse with very few problems, but it took us a week instead of a half day. My husband then built 2 bird houses with a decorative ridge grill that runs the length of the roof. We love it!
Delivery good and only one piece broken. This was replaced after a lot of phone/ email tag with Palram which was a forewarner of their customer service failings!Everything fit together nicely until I tried positioning the 10 columns up from the base frame. While the 4 columns that fixed straight to the metal frame fit perfectly, the 6 that had to locate over the base frame joints simply did not locate correctly due to the plastic molding of the base joints obstructing the attachment lips on the columns. I spent hours puzzling over whether I should be locating the columns either side of the joints, but the instruction manual seemed to indicate a position directly over the joint, and logically that had to be the way to go. Phone calls to Palram are met by an answering machine, and calls are not returned! Greenhouse Megastore rep was much more helpful and sympathetic but only confirmed what I knew - the columns had to go over the joints, but that is physically impossible given the design!! In the end I had to get a drill, hammer and chisel and remove the offending plastic from the joints in order to secure the columns. Happily that worked. The second narrowly averted disaster was that 2 of the A frame end of roof supports were incorrectly labelled - this way up was actually this way down, and I had to knock them out and turn them around to make the whole thing work. Once those challenges were overcome (plus a lot of fiddling to get the door unit fitting straight) the greenhouse is up and seems good and sturdy. All in all a success, but be prepared for a lot more work and frustration than predicted. I still can't believe that a mainly well-engineered kit has one such basic design flaw. Palram clearly don't want to believe it either, which is why they won't discuss it with you!
Always wanted a hobby greenhouse! Installation was relatively straightforward and preparing the foundation took longer than actual assembly. To give additional height, I built on top of 6 x 6 treated lumber, digging them down so the greenhouse itself sits approximately 2 above my patio. This added height really helps! I installed two 2' by 3' raised beds (20 deep) on one side and double planting shelves on the back and opposite side. The floor is decorative stone with flagstone walk down the middle. While it is slightly cramped, I started tomatoes, spring onions, carrots, and baby greens, all from seed in the two beds. This was in October. It is now February and I have tomato plants full of flowers, have been eating fresh greens, am waiting for the peppers and carrots. Ten different kinds of herbs on the shelves and some seed started veggies for the garden come spring. An electric heater keeps the greenhouse in the 50 to 70 degree range. To help with insulation, I covered the greenhouse with a sheet of 10 mil clear plastic. I could use a lot more sunlight, but being winter in Pennsylvania, I'll take what I can get. All In all, I'm very pleased with this product. The important thing to remember is the foundation. Don't skimp, even though the construction is fairly substantial, I don't think it would take a hurricane to take it down!
Great engineering and thoughtful design. Assembles to a sturdy final construction. Assembly time - warning - there is as much preparation time needed as there is assembly time ie: foundation, level surface, identifying and sorting parts, etcetera. Definitely a 2 person job, but it is easy work- someone to hd things in place through the frame assembly portion. DON'T assemble anything out of order........ They figured it out for you already - no need to reinvent it. Suggest writing label numbers on the part in addition to the labels that may be on the part once you identify it. The print is very full and the sticky isn't really stuck onto the part. Great customer service. I received two part errors and I had them replaced in 40 hours. (Double Check your parts before assembly day) I'll be ordering the automatic vent now I that know how much the automation is needed. Nice workmanship and materials. Measurements are spot on - made me look like a professional contractor even though I am not!
